The UN says tens of thousands of Pakistanis are likely to be displaced again this year as the military continues with its offensive against the militants.
Head of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs Manuel Bessler warned on Thursday that providing basic humanitarian relief for the displaced Pakistanis is likely to prove a major challenge in 2010.
He said many of the 2.3 million people displaced due to last year’s military offensive and are staying at UN-run camps, have returned to their homes. But many others, whose homes have been destroyed, will remain at the camps.
